Psychological Consultation in an Elementary School Moving Towards Open Education.
Horwitz, Robert A.
This is an account of the author's experience as a consultant in an elementary school which was attempting to move toward an open classroom approach. A psychologist and child development specialist with public school teaching experience, he defined for himself a twofold objective: (1) to work with principals and teachers to facilitate more open teaching; and (2) to provide the school with diagnostic services through teacher conferences and testing. He sought to design a role which took into account teachers' intellectual, emotional and interpersonal needs: that is, one which helped them gain information, find support, and communicate effectively. His extensive account of the school year should be useful to teachers, administrators, consultants, and others involved in the transition from traditional classrooms to more innovative forms of education.
